Remove and replace rear sprocket on tiger sport
« on: 16 January, 2019, 09:44:27 PM »
Hi everyone,
I want to replace sprockets and chain on my TS. My only worry is I've never worked on a single sided swing arm before! I only have the owners handbook! Are there any tutorials or videos I could watch etc?

Get a Haynes manual and do a full service of the back end  while you're at it. What year/mileage is your bike?

Worth reading this thread https://www.tiger1050.com/index.php/topic,39758.msg437771.html#msg437771. As long as you have a decent internet connection the workshop manual can be yours for the princely sum of 6.

FWIW I did mine a few weeks ago for the first time and nothing scary in it at all. Well apart from the fact that your dealer probably used an impact wrench to put on the front sprocket nut. Couldn't budge mine by jumping on a 2' breaker bar with SWMBO balanced on the brake pedal. Rear was a doddle though...

Changing the rear sprocket on SSSA is quite simple. No need to remove the rear wheel unless you want to regrease the rear hub as suggested by Paul2bikes.

By 'eckerslike m8, what's happened to yer chain kit, in such short miles. I was thinking it was the Gen1 when I suggested a Haynes, still good for most mechanical stuff but ya need the download manual for some stuff the Gen2.

Replacing the chain kit is simple enough, you need a 36mm socket for the gearbox nut, that can be either loose or as solid as Sean's was. If it is really tight I get a mate to sit on bike out of gear, front wheel against a wall with back brake on, I use a T bar with extension on each side, push & pull, less chance of damaging the bearing.

The rear hub greasing should be done in the 12k mile service, if you are diy ya might as well do it while doing ya chain kit, otherwise leave it, but ensure the dealer does it in the service.

Thanks for all your advise. I only purchased the bike back in the summer so not done many miles of my own! Think the previous owner ran it hard. The rear sprocket  didn't look that bad when I test rode it but its only when you get these bikes in your garage when you see a bigger picture. The front sprocket did look tired hence the chain and sprocket set. Good news about the rear sprocket, not having to remove the rear wheel!! Will be fitting it all this weekend.
